MFW - Jars of Joy

I love Mason Jars...There are so many inspirational photos over at Moxie Fab World for this challenge JOY OF JARS ! I hope I have time for a couple more entries ~ my head is swirling with ideas (it's usually at 2 or 3 AM), unfortunately when these thoughts come out on paper, they don't look the same :(  Oh well, I am not giving up.

Here is card #2, card #1 is the post before this one

The colors are a little more 'primary' than I usually work with ~ not sure what thats  all about?

 My Card ~ click on the photo for more details

Cardstock:  Base Card  and jar stamped onto Stamper's Select White from PTI; yellow is Glitter Stack Pack from DCWV; blue is from Gartner Sudios
Stamps:  the flower and leaves (in the jar) is Hero Arts; butterflies are Studio 112 from Joann's
Inks:  Yellow is by Ink It Up; Metallic Blue is from Tsukineko; butterflies on blue panel are embossed and Ancient Gold embossing powder is from Ranger (it has a shimmer/glimmer to it that my photo does not capture)
Tools & Embellishments:  Scallop punch, Corner Rounder from EKSuccess; two blues of Baker's Twine tied around the rim; Polka Dot button from Studio G; Sentiment is an Outline Sticker from Anita's Art Stamps;  Doily from my baking stash
